'lackluster DVD upscaling quality.'

'5-disc DVD changer and great audio'
'The SC-PT650's most obvious sonic shortcoming is dynamic range--there isn't much--so all the sounds come out more or less equally loud.'
'Dual 2.5” drivers in the front and center channels will deliver full, rich tone.'
'Patented PowerPort bass venting technology produces deep, textured low
frequencies that remain clean and rich.'
'The HD Radio signal is broadcast right alongside the traditional analog signal, so there's no special antenna to buy.'
'the I-Sonic's bass output is excellent for music and serious enough that you can hook up the built-in DVD player to a bedroom TV and watch a bass-filled movie, like Monster House , without shame.'
'you can fill the I-Sonic's 30 presets with any combination of stations from AM, FM, or XM, including these alternate HD streams.'
'Audio files commonly lose detail from the high and low frequencies during the process of being "ripped” or downloaded onto MP3 players.'
